Get a great-value Head Gasket Repair with Who Can Fix My Car.
Good honest mechanics (not many of those these days) price was as quoted, I will be definitely using this garage again in the future. Thank you
I had the rear discs and pads replaced for 135 as quoted and then I asked for the front pads replacing which was 60. Very friendly fast and a great service. I will be using this garage again.
Used this garage twice now with 2 different cars, once for a clutch and dmf and once for an exhaust back box. Quoted an excellent price each time, much cheaper than my regular garage and I have no complaints whatsoever. Quick and easy with no fuss. I would 100% use this garage again.
Got me in same day, did job in a couple of hours no problems would use again
Very good service
All good would defo use again, thanks
Paid price quoted.Car done same day. Excellent service,would highly recommend Thank you
Nat and his team have done themselves proud yet again. He’s done and excellent job from start to finish. Always in contact with me to keep me upto date and made me feel like he cared, more than other garages I’ve taken my car too. I’ll be going back again if any other issues arise.
Good service. Incorrectly supplied filters from factors. NEST arranged genuine filters from dealer at their expense. They would not let the car go without it being right and me being happy.
Although they did not repair my car these guys were very helpful.i found out it was an exhaust fault that I had had repaired not long before and was still on warranty.great friendly lads
Fantastic job and very well done but took nearly a month to get an invoice for work carried out. Lack of stationery was to blame. Can’t fault the mechanics though and have quoted me for further works at very competitive prices so will use again
Great service and customer service.Competitive price, called me to advise about extra work needed but wasn't pushy about it, which was nice. All in all it still came at a cheaper price than if I'd have just gone for a service elsewhere, would recommend to both walk in and WCFMC? customers
Perfect service once again. Collected and delivered back to us for a small charge, well worth it for the convenience. Would not hesitate in recommending this garage and will continue to use them for all my families cars.
Very pleased. Car collected a dropped back off. Work completed to a high standard and car running smoothly again. Nice and friendly garage, would highly recommend.
Was good jobs
Front pads and discs supplied and fitted, excellent service and value, would definitely use these again and recommend them to anybody else, even sorted a little squeak I had under the bonnet at no extra charge, good garage & good people, thanks
All as promised. No nasty surprises.
Excellent service, were able to fit the same day they quoted (yesterday) and had it ready earlier than expected. All in all a top garage & gave me advice on a further query I have and will be going back as garages who treat women fairly are few. Big thank you to all the staff!
First class service and first class workmanship from James, from initial phone call to completing the work on my car. His knowledge and expertise was second to none, readily explained everything and gave his honest opinion and the options available for the repair.. fair price as well for all the work he completing and in a day
Did a real good job and very quick would recommend
James was very thorough and honest. He found unforeseen issues caused by previous mechanics and made sure to call for permission before any additional work was done. He made everything was as smooth and easy as possible. I was running late to the garage to pick up my car, (I was catching a train and using a taxi to get there) it ended up being after the garage closed that I would arrive. James said to let him know 15 minutes before I would arrive and he'd open up for me to collect. Sure enough, I arrived and he turned up with a smile on his face and took the time to go through everything with me, making sure not to rush. Really above and beyond! I will be returning!
They were brilliant!
I got many quotes for clutch replacement on my Hyundai i20. Acer's quote was £100 cheaper than the next cheapest. I was wary about going for it but decided to take a chance after reading their reviews. I made the right decision ! Acer give you reasonably priced, honest, down to earth, friendly and most helpful service, unlike the smug forced politeness you get at main dealers. They go the extra mile to make sure you are a happy customer. A broken bolt in the clutch fork had damaged the clutch, causing a violent jerking when moving off from rest and stiffening of the gears. They replaced the clutch and fork (an expensive dealer-only part) for probably half what a Hyundai dealer would charge. Now I move off very smoothly and the gears slide in like butter. Lovely job. I'll be back at MOT time.
Really friendly guy, was suspicious at the price as it was so much lower than the Kia garage I usually use, but I took a punt and am glad I did. Not sure what parts have been used, but confirmed their Kia approved so no worries. Overall cracking little garage, cracking price will absolutely be looking for their names again when I next need a quote.
Did a great job and would recommend them. Very polite staff. Will use the garage again
Very helpful polite willing to sort problem out but didn't need them managed to sort problem out myself but would use them in future if needed to thank you
Very happy with the work they have done on my car, Recommend to friends and family.
Very good service from these guys I would highly recommend them to anyone. cheers lads
Very happy with the repairs, service and price. Would definitely use again or recommend to others.
Superb service! Cannot recommend highly enough. Lightening fast service and well below price quoted by others, certainly at least 5 days quicker than quoted by others. Many thanks to James - great service.

A head gasket is effectively a seal which is essential for maintaining the temperature and integrity of a car engine. It's a part responsible for sealing pressure within the engine as well as the distribution of oil and coolant.
Every time you turn on your engine the head gasket has to operate within very high temperatures and pressures, which is exactly what it is designed to do. The engine of your car needs to be cooled constantly as it relies on combustion for power and the head gasket is the core component in performing this job.
If the head gasket is damaged, the engine will quickly overheat and serious damage will be caused. Overheating in the engine of your car will lead to a loss of compression, the mixing of oil, water, coolant as well as a reduction in lubrication.
The head gasket is a very complex piece of equipment and so a variety of materials are needed to build it. It has to be able to withstand and function normally at extreme temperatures and pressure, it also needs to be resistant to all of the chemicals and oils which rush around your car engine.
As a result, each gasket from one car to the next is different as the demands of each engine are unique. Car manufacturers like Ford, Vauxhall and BMW spend millions of pounds every year in the research and development of head gaskets to help manage the pressure and cooling of engines.
Unfortunately, if you need a head gasket repairing, it will be on the more expensive side. However, if you follow the advice below you can learn how to recognise problems with your gasket before something serious happens.
There are other signs to look out for but unless you are a trained mechanic it will be difficult to spot them which is why it is so important that you have your car checked if you suspect there is an issue.
As mentioned above, if a head gasket blows, it can be a costly repair for you as a huge increase in temperature throughout the engine could very easily cause a range of other issues.
If you need a head gasket repair or if you think you might have an issue with the unit, it is vital that you pay attention to the issue, if you ignore the signs above and the gasket blows while you are driving this could cause serious threat to your safety.
A blown head gasket repair can be quite costly for any driver, no matter what car you drive. There is no easy head gasket fix and so you will need to get an experienced mechanic to take a look. The scale does vary for a head gasket repair when looking at different card brands. For a Mercedes, pricing is over £700 on average whereas for a Fiat the price is around £355 on average.
